The Best Noise Reducing Blinds for Windows

Think your blinds don’t count for much when it comes to noise reduction? Think again. While no blinds or window treatments will completely sound-proof your space or cancel all street noise, there are certain styles that do a handy job of lessening it. Keep reading to learn more.

The Best Noise Reducing Blinds for Windows

How to soundproof a room with blinds

There are plenty of reasons to install ‘soundproof’ blinds over the windows in your home. Whether you want to minimise noise in a nursery or child’s room (and hopefully maximise sleep!), you live close to a busy road, or your neighbours like to party, here are some of the best noise reducing window treatments:

Double roller blinds

As the name suggests, Double roller blinds offer the benefits of two fabric layers in one blinds system. Typically, double rollers consist of a sunscreen or translucent fabric layer paired with a blockout fabric. These two fabrics work seamlessly to provide privacy and block out harsh sunlight at any time of day.

Aside from providing optimal light and privacy control, double roller blinds also act as effective insulators. With double roller blinds installed, the outside world (including excessive light, noise and heat) can be prevented from disturbing the peace inside your home, getting you one step closer to an undisturbed night’s sleep. You can find out more about these innovative noise reducing blinds here.

Curtains

It makes sense that window treatments made from fabric will help muffle outside noise, that’s why so many people love thermal blinds. But did you know that curtains can also be an effective way to cancel street noise? The thicker the curtains, the more sound they’ll absorb, especially when paired with another type of blinds, like roller blinds or Venetian blinds. With both curtains and blinds installed over your windows, you can enjoy twice the noise reducing effects. You can find out more about pairing curtains and blinds here.

Roman shades

Roman shades or Roman blinds are stylish type of blind that features a unique fold-up design. The blinds are made up mostly from fabric, which not only means they’re available in a variety of colours, but they’re also effective at reducing outside noise.

Like curtains, Roman blinds work at reducing some outside noise because they’re made from heavy fabric. If sound reduction is a feature that you want to enjoy in your home, choose Roman blinds crafted from a thicker fabric. You can also add a privacy or blackout/blockout shade to give your window treatment even more precious, noise-absorbing layers. Shop these blinds online here.

Handy tip: When you’re trying to sound-proof or minimise the noise level in a room, it’s a good idea to check your caulking. The term ‘caulking’ refers to the sealant used for gaps, joints and seams in various surfaces around a building. So, if you’ve been noticing a few drafts around your windows and doors or if you just want to make sure your home is as quiet as possible, make sure your caulking is in good condition. A mere 1% gap in the sound barrier transmits 50% of sound!
